How to Choose a Colorado Personal Injury Lawyer
Have you suffered an injury from skiing? Were you hiking and injured yourself due to
someone's neglectful actions? Have you opened your local Colorado yellow pages and
don't know how to proceed finding the right personal injury lawyer? Consider the following information before proceeding further.
Where do you look first for a personal injury attorney?
If you are looking for a Colorado personal injury lawyer serving in Longmont, Boulder, Broomfield, Lafayette, Louisville, Ft. Lupton, Dacono, Frederick, Erie, Berthoud,
Brighton, Loveland, Estes Park, and Nederland, Colorado, you can start with the key phrase, 'Colorado personal injury lawyer' and peruse each result-page-rendered site. Secondly, you can take a look through the Colorado yellow pages under the 'lawyer', 'attorney', or 'personal injury' to elicit some results. Thirdly, you can ask friends and family members if they have used or know of any service providers firsthand.
Specialization or general
Some Colorado personal injury lawyers may specialize in this particular area, while others may provide counsel regarding other areas as well including Colorado car accidents, Colorado motorcycle accidents, Colorado trucking accidents, etc. Is it better to pursue a lawyer who concentrates solely on one area or several? It is important to find attorneys who have experience with cases similar to yours; scope of services may have more to do with the size of the firm and less about their ability to sufficiently address a specific need. If a firm advertises concentration in a particular area of law pertaining to your need, then pursue in learning more about that firm.
What to have at hand
Your first contact with the potential Colorado personal injury lawyer is important. You will have questions for them and they will also want information from you. Have copies of police reports, medical records/bills, income loss information, and other, germane documents at hand.
Some lawyers may charge for an initial interview or consultation, while others may not. Ask beforehand, so possible payment is not a future issue or misunderstanding.
What you want to know
Other than knowing if the specific firm focuses on
Colorado personal injuries, you will want to know additional information. Think about inquiring about the following:
- How long has the specific Colorado lawyer or law firm been in practice?
- What percentage of the lawyers or their offices? resources will be addressing your individual case?
- Has the lawyer or firm had experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in Colorado personal injury cases?
- Is the lawyer, conducting your initial consultation, the one who will handle your case or will your case be passed to another cohort?
What is your intended outcome?
You will want the lawyer to provide an estimate of the personal injury case outcome for you. Will you get compensated for your medical bills? Is there a possibility of incurring additional monies for pain and suffering? Will insurance companies involved be accepting of the case, or will the case be drawn out for some time? These are settlement questions your Colorado personal injury lawyer can address for you.
After speaking to one or several Colorado personal injury lawyers, serving in Longmont, Boulder, Broomfield, Lafayette, Louisville, Ft. Lupton, Dacono, Frederick, Erie, Berthoud, Loveland, Estes Park, and Nederland you will need to make a final decision. A contract must be made describing the scope of service and the amount owed for the provided services. Make sure you understand all of the conditions within the document, your responsibilities, and the law office's responsibilities before signing.
